summer snap monday- no rose

There is no rose of such virtue
As is the rose that bare Jesu;

For in this rose contained was
Heaven and earth in little space;
[thing of wonder]

By that rose we may well see
That he is God in persons three,
Pari forma.
[equal in form]

The angels
sungen the shepherds to:
Gloria in
excelsis deo:
[Glory on high to God. Let us rejoice]

Leave we all this worldly mirth,
And follow we this joyful birth;
[Let us follow]

Alleluia, res
forma, gaudeamus,

We are not a religious family in the sense that we don't really follow one set religion or go to Church, but I am spiritual and a big believer in something "else". This is a less common Christmas song that has always stirred my soul. I sang it in The Toronto Children's Chorus. Here is a link to a recorded version of it if you want to listen. It really is gorgeous.

For more summer snaps head over to Jodi's to be wowed and delighted.

I think it may feel more like summer there than here, it was a chilly Melbourne weekend. Loving all your photos from your last post too!
